This is my situation:

My 95gt is mainly for auto-x. it has all the goodies from the auto-x department and a s-trim supercharger. I want to give it a hack in the 1/4 mile track. I just picked up a pair of Nitto NT 555R 245/50/16 DR's for the rear. 3:55 gears have been great in the auo-x arena. My question is will I be a fish out of water with 3:55 vs the traditional 3:73 or 4:10's in the 1/4 track???
How much slower will it be generally 3:55 to 4:10

I will be auto-x more than 1/4 mile runs. so really dont want to swap to 4:10's.

Thanks

Stay with the 3.55's. With the supercharger and the 25.5 tall DR you should be fine, especially since you will still use the car for mostly Auto-x.
If you were NA and serious about your 1/4 ets, then I would step up to the 4.10. But the supercharger with the short rear tire will compensate for the 3.55's.
